Bharti Airtel (“Airtel”), India’s leading telecommunications services provider, has upgraded its mobile network in Tamilnadu to enable a superior voice experience for 4G smartphone users. This will add to the smartphone experience on India’s fastest mobile network.
The company has further optimized its 3G network, which carries bulk of the voice traffic for smartphone users, by deploying state of the art network solutions and advanced network software. Over the next six to eight weeks 4G smartphone users on the Airtel network will experience improved voice clarity, call stability and coverage.
Airtel has also increased its 4G coverage across Tamilnadu to enable a seamless high speed data experience. This will result in improved 4G availability – both indoors and outdoors – and ensure that 4G smartphone users are always getting the best of data speeds. Airtel 4G has been consistently rated as the fastest network in India by multiple global agencies.
With improved 4G availability, customers can also opt for Airtel VoLTE which offers HD voice quality and faster call set up. What’s more, Airtel VoLTE offers uninterrupted connectivity with fallback on 3G/2G in case of non-availability of 4G. Close to 200 4G smartphones now support Airtel VoLTE.
Commenting on the development Manoj Murali, CEO – Kerala & Tamilnadu, Bharti Airtel said, “Our customers are at the core of everything that we do and we are constantly listening to their feedback. Given the massive surge in 4G smartphone penetration, we have stepped up our network investments to serve the exploding voice and data usage. Airtel has already cemented its place as the fastest network in India and with the latest optimization, smartphone users on our network will also enjoy best-in-class voice experience. We invite all customers to switch to Airtel 4G and enjoy the superior network experience.”
Airtel is trusted by over 23 million customers across Tamilnadu. As part of Airtel’s network transformation program – Project Leap, the company plans to roll out 12000 sites and 3000 kms of optic fiber across the state.
